The National Honor Society, commonly abbreviated as NHS, is a nationwide program with chapters in many high schools, including Donovan Catholic.

The four pillars of National Honor Society are character, service, leadership, and scholarship. As such, National Honor Society holds numerous charitable events throughout the school year; most notably, these events include two blood drives and a dance for senior citizens.

It is moderated by Señora Damon.

Induction process Edit

Students must have a 98.0 overall GPA to become eligible for NHS, and must maintain at least a 98.0 GPA every semester. Qualified students are invited to join, and must apply for membership in the school's chapter at the end of their sophomore year. A panel of school faculty members then decide which students should be admitted. The NHS induction ceremony is usually held in September and is held in St. Joseph's Church. Students rejected in their sophomore year application may apply again at the end of their junior year. 

Executive board Edit

National Honor Society at Donovan Catholic is organized by moderator Señora Damon, in addition to five elected students from within the chapter. Like Student Council, the five positions are president, vice president, treasurer, corresponding secretary, and recording secretary. Elections for NHS occur during the same week as elections for office in the Student Council.
